Marketing automation vendor Marketo today released Marketo LaunchPoint, the company's new partner ecosystem. Launchpoint includes partnerships with more than 65 companies from online advertising , events and webinars, content marketing, top-of-the-funnel conversion, lead-data enrichment, social media, sales tools, analytics and big data, lifecycle marketing and services solutions.
Marketo LaunchPoint is one of the five pillars of Marketo’s recently announced Marketing Nation, a community-based platform designed to support the company's customers with peer-to-peer networking opportunities, third-party tools and services. Late last month the company launched its first Marketing Nation component, Marketo Program Exchange, featuring a library of best practices templates from its service provider and agency partners. “With LaunchPoint, we’ve completely re-thought the idea of what a marketing ecosystem is and how it can successfully serve these demands,” said Robin Bordoli, VP Partner Ecosystem at Marketo, in a press release. “Marketers now have one complete place to discover, learn, and try the most trusted solutions they need to drive revenue.”
According to Marketo, LaunchPoint will provide a single source for apps designed to work with the company's marketing automation platform. It will also feature crowd-sourced reviews, educational content, best practices and other community resources.
